yiChun Liu +劉怡君
Artist, born in Taiwan.
Currently works and lives in Taipei, mainly engaged
in Communication design and photography.
"Photography leads us to explore the boundaries of ourselves and
the shape of history and turn photography into a language that
leisurely retains the images we are accustomed to. Everything, in the
end, is ultimately death. It is rebirth and disillusionment. The pursuit
of perfection is nothing more than empty exuberance. It's the perfect
time to take on this turbulent, exuberant, restless, exaggerating but
full of life world, where the beauty of things viewed from a distance is
seen as nothing but symbols which are absolutely beautiful, wild, and
unpredictable. Using portrait as a medium to express the spirit of the
subject and trying to capture the game between the subject and the
imitator with the camera's view to create a scene of self-imagination
like the kingdom of gods.”- YC
Yi Chun Liu currently lives and works in Taipei. The city is located in the Republic of China (ROC), a democratic state in East Asia, which is now known as "Taiwan" due to its control over the territory and political situation. Only very few countries with which hold diplomatic relations with Taiwan still recognize it as the legitimate government. She is a graduate of Tainan University of Technology TUT’s art major. Interested in the history and cultural memory of her region and the younger gen-eration: their personal identities and their ability to inﬂuence the country’s uncer-tain status and the situations they face in their daily lives.
Working on studying subcultural groups since 2017, she ﬁnds their engagement with the world is astonishing as they are not burdened by the past. She uses por-trait as a medium to express the spirit of the subject and tries to capture the game between the subject and the imitator with the camera's view. The world is like the kingdom of gods, a free space created in the imagination.
